Catalonia and Spain
30 Sant Cugat G C Sant Cugat del Valles Par 68-70 Once a nice short course winding around a couple of hills. Tight drives (mostly irons from the tees) and short chips. Now sadly too built up to be valued.
31 Real Club de Golf El Prat (Airport Lincs) El Prat de Llobregat PGA European tour venue part tree lined part lincs. Usually windy and sadly now under the new runwat at Barcelona Airport. New course is very challenging around the fairways with loads of bunkers.

34 Bonmont G C Mont Roig Tarragona RT Jones Jr. design a delight to play and expect fast greens and long carries. Can get very windy so you need to master a low ball flight and be able to flight the ball both ways to score well.
35 La Graiera G C Calafell Long and windy since the opening of the full 18, Some challenging long carried. Number 6 of my top 10. Don't miss this course.

42 Caldes International Caldes de Montbui Only Nine holes but all beatifully set to make a stay worthwhile. A Specacular clubhouse.
43 Vilalba G C (La Roca) Cardedeu Parkland course with open fairways. The holes are mainly defended by length and bunkers. Hole 2 is the best on the course. A good course for the long hitters.
44 Vallromanes G C Vallromanes Very pretty well thought out course mainly flat with a couple of climbs, Fast greens and tight tee shots needed to do well.
45 Reus Aiguas Verdes G C Reus Beautiful course ruined by the villas. Not sure if the course was an afterthought but there are some fine holes. 18 in particular is pleasing to make a par.
